The building you're in is the historic Breakers Hotel, built in 1926 when the Long Beach waterfront was practically steps from Ocean Boulevard--not a mile away, as it is today. Elizabeth Taylor and her first husband, Nicky Hilton, spent their honeymoon at the penthouse suite. Their love nest was converted into the Sky Room restaurant when his father, Conrad Hilton, bought the structure and turned it to the eighth hotel in his chain in 1938. In its heyday, the restaurant hosted Clark Gable and John Wayne as customers. Today, the building houses retirees, but the Sky Room is still in operation. If the Art Deco scheme has gone a little stale, you excuse it because of the view of Long Beach Harbor, the old-school dishes such as the Salad de Maman tossed table-side and the massive osso bucco.
